WORDS OF ADVICE

If you’re a serious writer, you want and need readers. To get readers, your work must sell, whether you plan to self-publish or seek commercial publication. In this report you’ll find a wealth of valuable information to help you achieve your goals.

REJECTION

If you’re venturing toward commercial publication, have no fear of rejection. It’s simply a part of this business, so don’t take it personally. The Harry Potter books were rejected virtually everywhere before finally being accepted by Scholastic.

Also, some of the greatest literary classics of all time were panned by critics when originally published. Imagine how the following book reviewers might feel today after the books they bad-mouthed became so highly regarded:

". . . a sheer dead pull from start to finish . . . insincere, such a transparent make-believe, a mere piece of acting."

CENTURY MAGAZINE

A TALE OF TWO CITIES

Charles Dickens

 

"This book offers not pleasure, but mounting pain; as literature, it lacks the reserve that steadies genius, and that lack not only dims its brilliance, but makes it dangerous in its influence.”

CATHOLIC WORLD

FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS

Ernest Hemingway

 

 

"Mr. F. Scott Fitzgerald deserves a good shaking . . . The Great Gatsby is an absurd story."

SATURDAY REVIEW OF LITERATURE

THE GREAT GATSBY

F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

The above nasty reviews also illustrate that no matter how effective you may ever be as an author, you’ll never please everyone. Successful authors have a niche audience, and the opinion of readers beyond that group do not matter.

It’s important that you know what your audience wants and give it to them.
